Halo has always inspired me with it's enormous sense of storytelling. It's such a fantastic sci-fi inspiration. Those of you who've played the games should recognize this scene from Halo 2; when High Charity arrives at Installation 05.
This scene obviously doesn't ditto an actual in-game cinematic. I just put this together through memory. You'll notice that I designed the ring to appear incomplete which, in my opinion, allows the viewer to fill in the gaps between the ornate Forerunner architecture using their own imaginations.
I should also mention that this was my first, serious take on a digital drawing via Photoshop and Wacom tab. I absolutely love working with the software and hope to create more works like this in the future... but for now, enjoy!
